Toronto Catholic District School Board

Congratulations to Inclusive Education Award Winner

Christine Torres, currently teaching at St. Cecilia Catholic School, returned to Senhor Santo Cristo on June 19th for a special celebration in recognition of her winning one of Community Living Toronto’s Award for Inclusive Education.  Ms. Torres was nominated by a parent from Senhor Santo Cristo, Jennifer Pierces.  The award will be presented at Community Living Toronto’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday September 24, 2015. 

An excerpt from the nomination submitted by Mrs. Pierce follows:

Ms. Torres welcomed our son into her JK class this past September. Her attitude from the very start was one of embracing every one of her students and seeing each and every one of them as valuable contributors to the JK/SK classroom. Her attitude, and that of the principal, Ms. Lio (without whose support, we are fully aware none of this would have been possible), have set the tone for the entire school who have followed their model in welcoming and valuing Percy as a member of their community.

Ms. Torres was covering a maternity leave and is no longer at this school but she very much drove the introduction of Percy to his school, and the school to Percy. It was such a positive experience and so incredibly formative for the entire school. We are grateful, forever, for her care and for setting Percy up for a lifetime of success.
